A fantastic new resource!


February 2009

Kia ora koutou,
Here is the updated Field Maori STAR material. It is a total update - all unit standards have been checked and removed or added as appropriate. All the U/S in the Maori Unit Standards 2009 resource, can potentially be done under STAR, if the provider has the accreditation (see updated accreditation 1 page summary for schools).This represents a great shopping list for Te Waharoa National Certificate.But the great thing is that the Maori Performing Arts now has a website for assessment support material:

This is a huge benefit for STAR Coordinators and teachers who use this subfield, as the planning is all done for them to start them off.
See a sample one ( Haka level 2: 6 credits) attached.
